About the 2024 logo. The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch is a distinct architectural and historical feature of Hartford, our host city for the Grand Convent and Investiture, and a fitting tribute to our military grounding as an Order. The Arch is approximately one mile from our host hotel, and tours are available by arrangement.
